About MeI am a CIFellow Postdoctoral researcher in the department of Informatics at Univerity of California Irvine. My work is supported by 2021 National Science Foundation/ Computing Research Association, Computing Innovation Fellowship. I am mentored by Dr. Anne Marie Piper. I received my PhD in Computer Science from the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering (SICE) at Indiana University, Bloomington. I was advised by Professor Apu Kapadia at Privacy Lab during my PhD. I have completed my undergraduate from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). In Fall 2018, I have done internship at Microsoft Research India to explore the shared privacy concerns of visually impaired people and bystanders in the context of camera-based assistive technologies.
My current research interest lies in the field of usable privacy and security in the context of assistive technologies; in particular I am excited about understanding and designing systems that can address privacy challenges faced by people with visual impairments while using existing and emerging assistive technologies. During my undergraduate studies, I worked on visual sensor network, wireless network, and mobile computing.
I am currently on the academic job market.
